Easy to get to and easy to park (free). This is worth a visit if you have an hour or so to kill. Pretty informative and kids would especially enjoy it. Entrance fee is ok and a little café in the garden centre opposite.

I got tickets cheap for this so for what I paid it wasn't too bad but I wouldn't say it was worth the usual asking price. It's quite small doesn't take a lot of time to do the whole cave, I've been to other caves before which had a few more things to do which I felt this could really... More

Easy free parking in garden centre opposite & short walk to caves, set in beautiful countryside. Unfortunately it was cold & wet so we only went to the caves but on a nice day it would be lovely to explore the area& take a picnic. Set in a charming little village with an olde worlde sweet shop& tea room &... More

Worth a visit especially if the weather isn't brilliant. We went quite close to Halloween time so it was decked out for that. There were lots of pumpkins around and in the caves the nooks and crannies were set out with skulls and Devils etc. It was very well done to give it a bit more atmosphere. It was quite... More

We had a great visit today, Halloween. The caves weren't too busy and we were able to get round by ourselves as the ghost tours weren't yet operational. However we did run into one of the actors near the end of our trip and he was very good - gave us lots of information on the caves and spirits and... More

We used to live in High Wycombe - many years ago - returned to the area for half term holiday with our 5 year old son so thought we'd do the caves - delighted to find the area done up for halloween which he loved, pumpkins galore, face painting and spooky goings on in the caves themselves. Took him a... More

We visited the Hell-Fire Caves as a wet day activity. Roaming around the quarter of a mile of tunnels was quite spooky! There are caves with figures re-enacting the meetings that once took place here, culminating in the Inner Temple which is 300 feet below the golden ball atop St Lawrence's Church. The way the Caves are set up enables... More

I loved these caves. Full of history and mystery!! A great day out with the family. Very reasonable cost at £20 for a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) concessions £6. There are toilets and a coffee shop within the vicinity and near by there is St Lawrence's church and the mausoleum. Free parking on Chorley road in the... More

Interesting history and a good way to fill 30 minutes, close to West Wycombe village so worth popping along and also worth climbing the hill to the church and mausoleum as there are some great views of the Chiltern.
